The 2012 Smart Fortwo, with its lack of refinement, rough transmission and unpleasant highway ride, is one of the least desirable cars on the market. There are plenty of other cars we'd recommend as a compact city car.
- Fits in spaces others cannot
- Zippy around-town handling
- Surprisingly accommodating interior
- Attention-getting style.
- Rough-shifting transmission
- Expensive compared to larger subcompacts
- Awkward floor-pivot brake pedal
- Ill-suited for highway travel.
